lyrics

If you wanna know the truth (yeah, yeah)
I'll give it to you, Ruth (yeah, yeah)
The freshest kids were probably (yeah, yeah)
From 1954 to 63 (yeah, yeah)

But there's one thing we can do...
And you can do it too...
Come on, believe it!
Act like you need it!

It goes Doo-wop doo-wop
Don't stop
We got that doo-wop doo-wop
Don't stop
Doo-wop doo-wop
Don't stop
Gotta get that doo-wop doo-wop
Don't stop

If you wanna know the low down (yeah, yeah)
Just take a sec and slow down (slow, slow)
From 79 to 93 (what, what)
Some other kids picked it up and brought it back to the beat

From the Bronx to the BK, from Jersey to Queens
They spread it out across the globe beyond their wildest dreams
Yo throw your hands in the air if you know or care
Where this music comes from that makes us shake it in here

It goes Doo-wop doo-wop
Don't stop
We got that doo-wop doo-wop
Don't stop
Doo-wop doo-wop
Don't stop
Gotta get that doo-wop doo-wop
Don't stop

I got that doo-wop-a-ditty-ditty-dum-ditty-doo
Up jump the boogie to the boogety-boogety-shoo (dip dip dip)
Wikki wikki wikki... shut up... La di da di
A wop bop a lubop a wop bam boom
I said a ling-ting-tong-dang-a-dang-diggy-diggy-
Dee-to-the-dee-dangy-dang-diggy-diggy...
Chicka uh chick uh ah chicka uh chick uh
Chicka chicka ah c'mon! C'mon let's go

It goes Doo-wop doo-wop
Don't stop
We got that doo-wop doo-wop
Don't stop
Doo-wop doo-wop
Don't stop
Gotta get that doo-wop doo-wop
Don't stop

Doo-wop doo-wop doo-wop doo-wop
Don't stop
Doo-wop doo-wop doo-wop doo-wop
Don't stop
Doo-wop doo-wop doo-wop doo-wop
Don't stop
Doo-wop doo-wop doo-wop
Don't stop!
